I saw this when originally aired - busted a gut laughing so hard! There were a couple others that night (day after the State of the Union speach) that were pretty funny too.

Dave, Rich, and Deb, this Thursday is David Letterman's 25th anniversary as a late-night talk show host. It'll be a special show, with Bill Murray--Dave's very first guest in 1982--making another no-doubt-great appearance.

Thanks for the info, Peter! Dave has always had some fantastic anniversary shows in the past. Will have to keep this in mind. (Bill Murray cracks me up - he is such a goof.)

You're welcome, Deb. Immediately before coming to this site, I had looked at my email, which contained my weekly Late Show Newsletter, which provided the info.

Bill Murray might be my favorite Dave guest--he almost always has me cracking up, even when the audience isn't. I wasn't crazy about him in the SNL days, and his first few movies, like Stripes and Caddyshack, didn't get to me much. Probably since he was Dr. Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters, though, he might be my favorite contemporary comedian overall.

I watched Johnny Carson for years. He was brilliant and charming, and a television institution. Letterman should have been his successor. I like Jay Leno, also, but I LOVE David Letterman. I guess it's my Hoosier loyalty. After all, I remember watching Letterman doing the weather on Channel 13 in Indy and him reporting "hail the size of small canned hams" bit.

Yeah, Conan is allright by me. I never realized how tall of a dude he was until I saw the picture taken of him with Gov't Mule.

I once was waiting on line at the DMV to renew my license and Conan was right next to me. He's at least 6'5"... It's kinda freaky! He's about as white as Caspar the freakin' Ghost too, LOL...

does everyone agree that Letterman is the king of late night TV?
sbowen - agree with you here ... in sense of traditional late night (read "Johnny's time slot" lol) Letterman is my favorite. He never fails to crack me up (heck, just looking at some of the facial expressions he gets can get me chuckling).

Also agree with the comments here about Conan. When he first started as the post-late-night guy I didn't pay him much attention but as time has gone on and I've seen more of his stuff I've realized how extremely funny he is!!! I don't usually watch the award shows but I did tune into the beginning of the Ocsars (believe it was Oscars) when he hosted and his intro was a hoot...better than anything I'd seen any other host do.

LETTERMAN IS THE BEST

Dave is totally insane and I love him for it.

Never cared for Leno and Conan is just plain
weird.

Insane is good. I don't know about weird.

It shouldn't surprise me to see my fellow ABB'ers being such Dave fans. I'm with BigDave on the issue of Letterman being Johnny's successor.

My opinion: NBC screwed up big time on that - although I guess ratings count and Jay still wins in that war (which I find impossible to understand). Would I be alone in thinking that Jay's brand of humor is just moronic? I don't find him remotely funny - or for that matter even entertaining - and his interview style (always interrupting to insert the quick one-liner) just bugs the sh!t out of me.

Funny thing is; if you go back, it was Letterman who introduced Leno to a wider audience by having him on the old show so often.

But that's just me and my opinion. There's plenty of room for both of them I guess. The one thing I wish Dave would do (and I think he used to do this more on the old NBC show) is give a little more time to his own band. He definately has the best band of the late night crews, and I hate it when I hear them cranking up "All Along the Watchtower" of some other hot tune as they go to break. I'm always thinking "damn, I'd like to see/hear them play that through!" To his credit, Johnny used to feature his band more, letting them occassionally play full numbers. Or feature a specific musician sitting in with his band - like when Buddy Rich used to be on. I really miss that. Too often now, what passes for musical guests on Dave's show are so lame that I'd rather see Paul and the band go for a tune instead.

Agreed. The CBS Orchestra has one of the best rhythm sections out there....Anton Fig on drums and Will Lee on bass. They are EXCELLENT players, then add the rest of the band, the horns, the guitarists and Paul. Paul is very overlooked as a band leader. Anybody ever hear him on Grand Funk Railroad's BOSNIA live album leading the Detroit Symphany? And Peter Frampton was a guest on that, as well as Alto Reed.

By the way, thanks for the video and the thread, Dave! I saw that one that night, too--poor Nancy's contacts must've been acting up.

Dave and Rich, Paul & the CBS Orchestra are pretty good, all right! Far better than that loud, musically garish train wreck led by Kevin Eubanks (who actually showed promise as a struggling young guitarist back in the day) and better than Max & the Weinberg 7, which does play some cool blues and swing at times but has the worst cheesy old showbizzy songs as a guest walks on. But you're right: Dave should showcase the band more, like Johnny so nicely did with Doc and the band.

Paul seems like he can play about anything that pops into his head, and his musical knowledge is just so vast, so his spontaneous little bits make for a nice soundtrack while Dave's doing his monologue or sitting at the desk. One of my favorite things about Paul is his choice of songs to go with a guest or some of the comedy bits, like Jimi's "You Got Me Floatin' " as the inspiration for the weekly "Will It Float?" theme song.

Match the Theme Song and the Guest

Here are 5 songs Paul has recently played as guests came on.
Match them to the 5 guests and give the reasons.
(No prizes, and remember: this is only a competition--please, no wagering. )

1. "Messin' with the Kid"...............a. Dwayne Johnson
2. "She Blinded Me with Science"...b. Matthew Perry
3. "Why Can't We Be Friends?"......c. Ashton Kutcher
4. "Rock Steady".........................d. Alex Rodriguez
5. "Willie and the Poor Boys".........e. John Travolta

I never watch any late-night talk shows, but let me try this.

I'd say Messin' with the Kid was for Ashton, as Demi is messing with a kid. Dwayne Johnson is "The Rock," so I guess he got Rock Steady. John Travolta is a Scientologist, so I assume he's been blinded by science. Matthew Perry was on friends, so "why can't we be friends" is appropriate, and I'll match Alex Rodriguez with "Willie and the Poor Boys" because those are the only choices left.

Who is Alex Rodriguez? Is he the person they call A-Rod? I went to high school with I think four guys named Alex Rodriguez, so I'm confused.

During the Run, maybe some of us CBS orchestra lovers show hang near Rupert's with some signs of encouragement to Dave asking for "More Paul & the Band!" It's not that far from the Beacon...

Ding-ding-ding! You got all 5 matches right, Droogie, and you got the 4 out of 5 explanations.

I better answer this before Wharfy sees this. He doesn't call him "A- Rod," exactly.

Yes, A-Rod is Alex Rodriguez, and vice versa. He got the "Willie and the Poor Boys" because he's the highest-paid baseball player. (I don't think the "Willie" had anything to do with it, and I can't think of the lyrics to know whether they're relevant to A-Rod's situation, but the second half of the title alone is a backwards reference to him.)

Excellent job on the other 4 explanations, though. I'm surprised the first guesser would know who Dwayne Johnson was, but you probably know Hulk Hogan's first name and Andre the Giant's last name, too. My guess: Andre "Hulk" Hogan and Andre "the Giant" Hogan.

Hulk Hogan's first name is TERRY. He was born here in Augusta, GA. Also, did you know he played bass in a band called Ruckus?

I love letterman!

i actually got to go see a taping of it once, Chuck Norris was the guest along with Jewell. it was good.

That Paul Shaffer is a nice guy too. My exhusband and i where standing oustide the studio, getting our mindset 'adjusted' and sho'nuff, it turns out to be the stage door, out comes Paul, he asks if we are skunk trappers and we all laugh and laugh....nice guy.
